Communications Warfare, a division of Productive Industries, LLC established in 2005, is the leader in planning and providing electronic communications and tactical warfare antennas from Alpha Antenna for portable, mobile, base, backhaul, and encrypted ALE systems for self-supporting world-wide, regional, and localized communication networks.

Communications warfare is a concept involving the use and management of information and communications technology in pursuit of a competitive advantage over an opponent. Information warfare may involve collection of tactical information, assurance(s) that one’s own information is valid, spreading of propaganda or disinformation to demoralize or manipulate the enemy and the public, undermining the quality of opposing force information and denial of information-collection opportunities to opposing forces. Information warfare is closely linked to psychological warfare.

Some favor technology to wage communications warfare, which extends into the realms of electronic warfare, cyberwarfare, radio frequency, information assurance and computer network operations, attack and defense.

Many use the much broader term of “Information Operations” which, although making use of technology, focuses on the more human-related aspects of information use, including (amongst many others) social network analysis, decision analysis and the human aspects of command and control.

Communications warfare can run the spectrum from radio frequency to cyberspace attacks initiated by one nation, organization, or individual against another nation having an underlying goal of gaining information superiority over the attacked party, which includes disrupting or denying the victimized party’s ability to gather and distribute information. For example, if a nation chose to attack another nation’s power grid by disrupting wireless communications or attacking servers in a specific area to disrupt communications, civilians and businesses in that area would also have to deal with power outages, which could potentially lead to economic disruptions as well.

Moreover, physical abilities have also been implemented into the latest revolution in military affairs by deploying new, more autonomous robots (i.e. – unmanned drones) into the battlefield to carry out duties such as patrolling borders and attacking ground targets. Humans from remote locations pilot many of the unmanned drones, which gives opportunity to wireless radio frequency warfare.
